Central Africa Time

Central Africa Time, or CAT, is a time zone used in central and southern Africa. Central Africa Time is two hours ahead of Coordinated Universal Time (UTC+02:00), which is the same as the adjacent South Africa Standard Time and Eastern European Time.

As this time zone is in the equatorial and tropical regions, there is little change in day length throughout the year, and so daylight saving time is not observed.

Central Africa Time is observed by the following countries:

The following countries in Africa also use an offset of UTC+02:00 all-year round:

  •  Egypt (observes Eastern European Time)
  •  Lesotho (observes South African Standard Time)
  •  Libya (observes Eastern European Time)
